In the Column List:

  • P = Primary key
  • M = Mandatory field
  • F = Foreign key (where the term is used loosely to indicate a surrogate key reference to a field in another table, not a formal constraint)
  • DV = Default value
  • In the Data Type column, varchar/nvarchar means that the data type is varchar except in multi-language databases that use Unicode, in which case the data type is nvarchar. (The Info Mart database in Cloud deployments is not multi-language.)

Table IRF_USER_DATA_KEYS

Description

Modified: 8.5.001 (CREATE_AUDIT_KEY and UPDATE_AUDIT_KEY added)

In partitioned databases, this table is partitioned.


IRF_USER_DATA_KEYS allows specification of up to 800 deployment-specific, user-defined string attributes that may come attached with interactions. Use this table to define low-cardinality dimensions if you require storing low-cardinality KVP data for reporting purposes.

The table includes a foreign key that references either an IRF record or an MSF record. The table also includes references to foreign key columns for the predefined dimensions that are based on user data and to a configurable number of Custom_Key columns.

Each row describes a combination of foreign keys to predefined and custom dimensions that characterize the interaction. A new row is issued for each new interaction resource fact. If the DN- or Script-level [gim-etl].link-msf-userdata configuration option or, starting with release 8.5.003, the application-level link-msf-userdata-voice or link-msf-userdata-mm configuration options are specified, a new row is also issued for each new mediation segment fact, to store the user data for an interaction that is in mediation.

INTERACTION_RESOURCE_ID

A reference either to an INTERACTION_RESOURCE_FACT record or, if storage of mediation user data is configured, to a MEDIATION_SEGMENT_FACT record. This is the primary key of this table.

START_DATE_TIME_KEY

Identifies the start of a 15-minute interval in which the IRF or MSF resource's participation in the interaction began. The value of this field is identical to the START_DATE_TIME_KEY value in the IRF or MSF record that is identified by the INTERACTION_RESOURCE_ID value. Use this value as a key to join the fact tables to any configured DATE_TIME dimension, in order to group the facts related to the same interval and/or convert the START_TS timestamp to an appropriate time zone. This value can also be used to enable local indexes with partitioning.

TENANT_KEY

The surrogate key that is used to join the TENANT dimension to the fact tables to indicate the tenant of the IRF or MSF resource. The value of this field is identical to the value that is in the IRF or MSF record that is identified by the INTERACTION_RESOURCE_ID value. This value can be used to restrict data access.

INTERACTION_DESCRIPTOR_KEY

The surrogate key that is used to join the INTERACTION_DESCRIPTOR dimension to the fact tables to identify the business attributes, such as customer segment and service type, that are associated with the interaction. If a call did not include these attributes during a specific fact, this key references the default "Unspecified" dimension value.

CREATE_AUDIT_KEY

Introduced: Release 8.5.001
The surrogate key that is used to join to the CTL_AUDIT_LOG control table. The key specifies the lineage for data creation. This value can be useful for aggregation, enterprise application integration (EAI), and ETL tools — that is, applications that need to identify newly added data.

UPDATE_AUDIT_KEY

Introduced: Release 8.5.001
The surrogate key used to join to the CTL_AUDIT_LOG dimension. Specifies the lineage for data update. This value can be useful for aggregation, enterprise application integration (EAI), and ETL tools — that is, applications that need to identify recently modified data.
